Carlos Hidalgo Romero: Better harvests improve household economy and education


Original Story: Faces of Impact, CIP CD-Rom

I want my family to study. My idea is for them to go to the city and study, but not stay there of course. The education in rural zones is a bit poor. The schools here do not keep the proper hours, they let the children out before time is up, or they arrive late. In the city the schools begin on time and the children can learn more.

The children have to walk to school and if it is raining they still walk to school. They get wet, their notebooks get wet, but they go to school!
